film still of crystal in window with subtitle I think for me its about you know what it is you want to represent

film still of cat in interior doorframe with wooden floor and subtitle saying LEIFER: willingly

film still of inverted grass and flowers

film still of hand grasping sand as if groping a cock

film still of covert stairing at a topless man in a park in Berlin

film still of the metallic interior of a milk tank

photograph of a hay stuffed chastity belt on a copy of the posthuman on top of some drawing on pink paper beside a sports direct mug

install shot of the vide slope-tend-big in front of a wall drawings with beanbags made from pride flags

film still of a man dancing in a dark night club centrally overlaying as a vertical stripe an interview of two women on a green sofa in a domestic environment

film still of an abstract shot of a mans as he leans forward with a hotel curtain behind him
